Paul Simon Interviews Dalai Lama for Documentary

DHARAMSALA, India (AFP) - Singer Paul Simon interviewed Tibet's exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama for a documentary about Nobel peace laureates.

Simon is the latest in a long line of celebrities to visit the Dalai Lama here, including Sarah Ferguson, supermodel Christy Turlington and actors Pierce Brosnan, Richard Gere, Steven Seagal and Goldie Hawn.

The documentary, funded by the Nobel committee, will also feature interviews with Myanmar pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi and former South African president Nelson Mandela.

"So far we have Noble laureates like former Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev interviewed by singer Bono of U2, and Jewish physicist Joseph Rothblatt interviewed by actor Michael Douglas," said production director Ines Stephan.

The Dalai Lama has lived in exile in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh since a failed uprising against Chinese rule in Tibet in 1959.
